We are thrilled to announce that in 2023, the Brain and Body Foundation, in collaboration with Embrace Kids and Tackle Sickle Cell, led by the McCourty twins – Jason and Devin (both NFL players) plan to kick off the project SCD Nigeria campaign with the goal of providing Citamil supplements (a combination of vitamin C, zinc, and vitamin D3) to 2000 children living with sickle cell disease for an entire year.
This is part of our sickle cell disease endgame, which aims to reduce the death rate of children under the age of five with SCD from 75% to less than 10% by 2025. The 25,000 bottles of Citamil have arrived and are being held at our office awaiting distribution to our partners.
